    Alexander over Putzier?

    Denver Post Article

    Scroll down to the bottom of the article where it talks about position battles. Very interesting.


    I was suprised to read this article. Have you guys that have been in camp seen any evidence to support this?

    No way.

    Putz will be the starting TE, at least the TE that catches passes.

    During the practices I've been to so far, the starting offense has used a lot of double tight end sets. I think that trend will continue and both will see a lot of time. Plummer is favoring both TE's a lot. Alexander is clearly the better all around tight end, but hasn't been able to match Putzier in receiving. I can't recall Putzier dropping a ball yet that was put on his hands, I've seen Alexander botch two balls right in the bread basket.

    Alexander over Jeb is good news. Why you ask. Well Jeb turned out to be a great player for us. Even in the offseason we knew there was something special in him so we gave him that contract to keep him out of New York. So if Alexander is looking better than Jeb thats great news. Because a simple signing just improved our receiving core. And if Alexander is looking better than Jeb that means he is doing very well.

    Wonder how Nate is doing at TE

    Glad to see my boy (adopt-a-bronco) Anderson doing good

    Thanks, J-let. Sounds like Jeb is still there at the front.
    Sounds as if we have two good TEs.

    Alexander is the BEST blocking tight end. So both tight ends will be featured.

    I think Shanny wanted to use two tight end sets from the get go but at the end of the season if Alexander plays well, Putz will then be traded. Just to clear salary cap space!
    Bradley Chubb has an Aaron Donald type ability to disrupt and wreck games!

    I agree with that, but only if we drafted TE Mercedes Lewis out of UCLA next year.

    Our offense needs a recieving threat at TE and Alexander just isn't that.

    I think Shanahan would keep the player that's younger and has more potential. I'd chalk up the article to keeping people interested in the pre-written bio.

    Wondering if Patrick Hape's days are numbered.

    Well, actually, Alexander was used a lot as a slot receiver in college,
    and he has superior speed for a TE. So his receiving isn't bad, either.

    I think the depth charts don't matter for TEs....because Denver utilizes a multiple TE set. So you will see Alexander and Putzier out there at the same time.

    Patrick hape will remain the short line end. I see success in the TE posistion.

    Wow. This all is happening fast.
    Before camp everyone was all Putz Putz now its Alexander.
    I hope Putzier will get the starting spot. Both will get a lot of playing time this year for we will use two TE sets. I just hope we start hearing more about Putzier and how he is doing im camp soon.
